How we can help

Our Trauma Therapy Program

Trauma and PTSD causes people to relive events, avoid them, or have them affect their emotions and decision-making.

That can lead to troubling behavior, like relying on drugs and alcohol as a way of self-medicating. However, the trauma therapy program at Reign Recovery Center allows clients to work through any trauma-related issues in a safe clinical space. Addressing underlying trauma helps individuals accept and give in to their treatment program.

PTSD is a serious mental illness that can affect you physically, mentally, and emotionally. It’s important to find help if you or someone you love suffers from PTSD, which is why it’s so important to identify the symptoms of this disorder. The good news is that treatment centers in Florida are ready to provide the care needed for recovery.

The first step towards recovery begins with recognizing the signs of PTSD and its effects on your body and mind. Symptoms include heightened anxiety levels, difficulty sleeping or concentrating for long periods of time, loss of interest in social activities, depression episodes, irritability/anger outbursts, hyperarousal (feeling constantly on guard), nightmares or flashbacks about traumatic events experienced by yourself

How Trauma Therapy Works

Trauma therapy often follows a structured approach, encompassing various phases tailored to the individual's needs. In the initial stabilization phase, clients collaborate with therapists to acquire essential coping skills and develop strategies for managing intense emotions effectively. This phase aims to provide a solid foundation for navigating the challenges associated with trauma without becoming overwhelmed. Subsequently, the processing phase delves deeper into the therapeutic journey, focusing on integrating diverse emotions and thoughts into one's understanding of traumatic experiences. It involves exploring and reconciling complex feelings and memories, fostering healing and growth.

At Reign Recovery Center, we offer trauma therapy as part of our comprehensive treatment programs, and our team can assist you in verifying your insurance coverage to ensure you receive the support you need.

Options for Our Trauma Therapy Program

Reign Recovery Center is a smaller, more intimate facility than most. For instance, our new residential treatment program only has seven available beds. That lets us give each client the individual focus they deserve. We believe that leads to more positive outcomes and reduces the chances of a relapse after leaving our care. Additionally, clients can roll directly into our aftercare programs after leaving treatment.

For clients who need more flexibility, we offer a partial hospitalization program and an intensive outpatient treatment. Each gives clients the structure and support required for their recovery while allowing them to go home at night. Furthermore, we consider our clients as family, so we celebrate each success and are there when they need more encouragement.

Sometimes people come to us for help while still suffering from withdrawal. We work with Serenity House Detox to get them through the process safely. Once you are safely on the other side, we sit down and give you a complete evaluation.

Addiction Slows Recovery From Trauma

Due to the cognitive and behavioral damage associated with alcoholism and drug addiction, substance abuse merely delays recovery from a traumatic event. Childhood trauma and substance abuse must both be addressed as co-occurring mental disorders. Otherwise, unresolved PTSD may lead to relapse.

Let our trained therapists and caring staff help you break the cycle of addiction and learn to deal with memories and emotions that may lay deeply buried.

How Trauma Informed Care Works

Trauma affects a person’s sense of self and what they believe. It drives their motivations and behaviors, which can be self-destructive and harmful to those who care for them. Individuals suffering from trauma may have problems recognizing the depths of their issues, making it harder for them to absorb and accept professional help.

Instead of approaching a client from the perspective of “What is wrong with them?” a specialist trained in trauma informed care focuses more on what may have caused the behavior. Trauma informed care accounts for the trauma experienced by individuals in their past. That lower the chances of triggering more trauma symptoms in a client using more aggressive methods.


Five guiding principles form the framework of trauma informed care in facilities. Reign Recovery Center uses them to provide clients with a way of working through events in their past that are likely driving their addictive behavior.

  • Safety — Clients receive reassurance that they are safe both physically and emotionally while in our care.
  • Choice — Clients have the final say over what they do and the progress of their treatment.
  • Collaboration — Clients work together with our mental health professionals to share power and form a partnership to work toward the individual’s recovery. Individuals have a say in their treatment plan and in evaluating various services offered by our facility.
  • Trustworthiness — We work to earn our client’s trust by being transparent, consistent, and setting boundaries to ensure they receive professional treatment.
  • Empowerment — Clients find power and strength through learning skills and validation of their positive choices.
